right hand guy. the guy who was the first to support you, who's been hammering obama on your behalf all year suddenly looking like his best friend. whichever you way you dress this up, this cannot help mitt romney, can it? >> no. the cynic would say, what did mitt romney do in the last couple of weeks to piss governor chris christie. he didn't have to go the extra ten miles that he went. >> he say the president went the extra mile and his first responsible to the people of new jersey. knowing chris christie as i do, i think he is a straight guy. i like him very much. i think he is a straight talker. i think when he says it he means it. >> i thought he was sincere. >> i saw an interview with him last niechlt in his hometown devastated, places he grew up and i think he thought, this is not about this election and the president is going the extra mile for me. >> i saw the press conference he conducted and i was impressed with a couple of things he said. he pointed out how after irene a year ago, the hurricane, he put forward a bill in the new jersey legislature to change like a 100-year-ol

if there is a big development that allows romney or obama to advance their argument. right now the simplest way to analyze the election, 50% obama, 50% romney and the swing states basically tied. that is simplyification. ashley: what is interesting last month's jobs report was so anomalous. the numbers didn't make a lot of sense. there were a let f internal contradictions on the jobs report this one could go either way. months ago we saw no discernable effect on this race. i think the economic narrative in both directions is set in concrete. i don't expect this to change that. ashley: lastly, monica, to me i can't believe there are any undecideds out there. cheryl: me, too. i don't get it. >> doug? >> i have problems with both candidates. ashley: maybe. doug, we found one. >> that makes some sense. ashley: moye point, it is jobs of both candidates to be gaffe free? not play terrible mistakes? >> you're correct. the you will find the last couple days of any presidential election, play it safe. don't do any risky interviews. they want to get through election days. i remember working for presiden

they wanted to cut right here on this show. then, do you believe in miracles? a week before the election, a republican actually gives credit to president obama. >> the president has been all over there. he deserves great credit. he gave me his number president white house and told me to call if i needed anything and he absolutely means it. >> cenk: but chris christy has an ulterior motive. >> is it too soon to talk about climate change or is it too late to talk about climate change? >> i never imagined that you could see glaciers this big disappearing in such a short time. >> cenk: almost no show outside of current television talking about climate change being related to sandy yesterday with that we're doubling down today. we've got the numbers to prove our case, so stay right here. it's go time.

. that's why the money is coming in. that's why obama is really playing hard defense right now. >> larry, two things to watch in pennsylvania. in the west, you have the coal country. they're very irritated about the obama administration's regulations. and in the east, you have the philadelphia suburb philadelphia suburbs. romney is strong with republican voters. if suburban voters flip, romney has a real shot in the keystone state. >> if republicans are always worried about wasteful spending, this is a perfect example of wasteful spending. they don't spend any money in minnesota at all. >> one at a time. >> it's not that long ago. >> 1972 is the last time minnesota voted for a republican. >> i hate to say it, but it was richard nixon. now i've said it. robert costa, i want you to challenge my friend keith boykins. you're saying there's a horse race in michigan, and wisconsin. the numbers in wisconsin look even up. and in iowa, where the liberal des moines register just endorsed romney. so there could be some real midwestern upsets, huh? >> the point in wisconsin is true. keith boykins is
president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
christie's response here. he has been praising president obama. something we typically don't hear. >> right. and governor christy is saying this is a bipartisan issue. this is not about politics. because take a look. we're here on a main street in atlantic city. several blocks from the waterfront of this bayside community and you can see a kayak was washed ashore because of the storm. and this is only a little bit of the damage we've been seeing. take a look at this. this is a small houseboat that was torn from the pier. you see the pilings it was attached to, and it was just swept into the middle of this intersection here on the street. and this is the type of damage and destruction, zoraida, that the president will see firsthand when he comes here later this afternoon to tour this damage. he will talk to first responders and victims of the storm, and he spent three days off the campaign trail, because of the storm, and now he has to walk a fine line of anything as president, to console families who have felt the impact of the storm, while making it not look like merely a photo-op. as you
down south. >> brian: president obama set to tour the damage. the president's request to visit new york city denied. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ >> gretchen: good morning, we start with an extreme weather alert. devastation sandy has left behind unimaginable and cities must begin the grueling recovery . the super storm killed 55 men, women and children and first responders. estimates of the physical damage are at 20 billion dollars and the recover will have to wait. eight million people are in the dark and aren't expected to get power back for weeks. hardest hit is new jersey, new york and pennsylvania. meanwhile, the president of the united states asked mayor bloomburg, i would like to take a look at all of the damage and mayor bloomburg had a press conference and said we are flattered by the fact that the president of the united states would like to come and visit us, but not right now and we are really busy and the first responders need to pay to exeem put things back in order. it would be great if the president goes to new jersey and the president will tour the devastati
than an airport right now. that remains closed. also, president obama will visit hard-hit areas of new jersey today, touring the areas with governor christie. >> here in new york, most of lower manhattan remains without power this morning. this is a live image. in the foreground is brooklyn. but across the river, absolute blackout. con ed had to cut power to areas of brooklyn and staten island overnight. and from the jersey shore, the view from the air revealing how much devastation that popular tourist area suffered. there's worries about leaking fuel in still-flooded towns. new jersey governor chris christie says the area will be rebuilt. he said it won't be the same, though. >>> and further from the east coast, sandy will go down as a massive snowmaker. one ski resort in west virginia reported three feet of heavy, wet snow that was blown by 60-mile-per-hour winds. the weight of the snow was too much for some trees, many of which collapsed across roads, forcing the roads to close. >>> once again, our broadcast is dedicated to the latest on the storm and its aftermath. >> and so, we b
. and dozens of events by both candidates has been canceled. >> that's right. president obama was here in orlando yesterday, but left before his own rally, to go back and monitor the storm coverage. we're told he stayed abreast of the coverage all day. mainly briefed by his chief homeland security adviser, john brennan. he watched the storm coverage on television, like much of us, throughout the night. he spoke with the governors of the states that were hardest hit. cuomo from new york, christie of new jersey. and also talked to the mayors of new york city and the mayors of jersey city and newark. talked about what they need. in the information he also one of the things we could do would be to expedite the process, by declaring major disaster relief. he'll be briefed again later today and will have a conference call. it seems like the campaign will go back on schedule tomorrow, george. >>> we're getting more scenes of devastation. extraordinary shots. look at that. a large tanker ship washed up on the shores of staten island here in new york city. michelle charlesworth has more on that
in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder ether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip abou
the way through until our work is done. all right? thank you very much everybody. [ applause ] >> president obama with governor chris christie in new jersey today making comments about hurricane sandy and the recovery effort. let me bring in john harwood in washington to talk more about the president's comments. john, interesting to see two unlikely politicians very much on the same page on this issue right now. >> exactly. as chris christie said, maria, first and foremost it was two elected officials doing the jobs they were elected to do. so in some sense the president simply performing as citizens would want him to. on the other hand, for all the tens of millions of dollars being spent on television advertising in this final week of the election campaign, it is absolutely priceless for him to be standing there with the keynote speaker at the republican national convention against him. and to have chris christie say the president shows compassion, concern for our state and functioning at a high level. the president emphasized that 15-minute rule. he's going to return phone
at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to the nation? >> well, you know, suzanne, they won't outwardly say that, but, in fact, this is an opportunity for president obama, i think, to be able to step up and show that he is a leader, and i think that's why we saw governor romney take the action and cancel his campaign events as well. governor romney did pretty well in this last presidential debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate
president obama leave and they didn't heed the warnings and they stayed behind and that's my concern right now and it's the concern of everybody from the community is the safety of our friends and family that they didn't want to leave. >> steve: absolutely. we had the councilman on a little while ago. he said in that particular neighborhood, the houses were real close to each other. >> brian: they were attached, i think. >> steve: yeah. one right after another, like box cars. do we have any idea what caused the fire? >> i think some of the transformers on top of the towers, some of the wires may have hit the water would have started the fires. but with the heavy winds and lack of any first responders due to the flooding, the fire just spread very quickly in different areas. i myself stayed up very late. i just woke up a little while ago to follow people on different social media sites to try and see where they were and ha they were doing. 0 o'clock inmine reported the morning, the house one of the ones that burned. >> brian: describe the neighborhood. >> it's basically a community of sing
holding four leapt laurel votes. right now its unemployment rate for september, 5.7%. president obama won the state by a large margin in 2008 with 9%. neil levesque is the executive director of the new hampshire institute of politics, joining us this morning from manchester. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning from new hampshire. before i start, i want to thank c-span and congratulate c-span radio on 15 great years being on the air. it has been a very valuable resource for some of us in civics. a great resource. in new hampshire, we are a swing states. four electoral votes. it sounds like a small number, with 538, but if al gore had won those of for your votes, he would become president. so they are very important. this state is a tossup. the issues are little different in new hampshire than across the country. unlike a state like nevada and has a higher unemployment rate, and mentors at 5.7%, which is a little higher than it has been all summer, this means jobs and the economy is an issue that is certainly front and center ended is the number-one iss
. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continue the court's conservative shift and threaten abortion rights, search and seizure protections and other individual liberties." this year's presidential endorsement of mitt romney does not mention the supreme court. exactly the same paragraph could have been written in this year's editorial about the supreme court and they just have to substitute the word romney for the word mccain, but "the des moines register" editorial board no longer cares. they don't care about the united state supreme court. the number one reason to vote for president. that's how much they've rewritten their criteria for presidential endorsements in four years. can you imagine what that vigorous debate was like among the five people in "the des moines register" editorial board? you know someone in that room was just sitting there say
. the unemployment rate right now is 8%. president obama won the state in 2008 by a nine percentage advantage. joining us from denver is curtis hubbard. what is the top issue for colorado voters? guest: it would not surprise you when i sit the top issue is the economy and jobs. energy is a big issue. education is another big issue. among the latino population and especially democrats, immigration reform is a big issue. host: what is the demographic of the voters in colorado? guest: 52% women, 48% men. over the years, we have increased the number of people voting by mail. already, 800,000 people have cast ballots in the state. the state is equally divided. one-third is republicans, one- third is democrats, and the other one-third are unaffiliated voters. everybody is playing for that group of unaffiliated voters. you try to figure out which way it will break. you will hear a lot of talk about appealing to women and latinos. we have heard a lot about the bennett strategy, that refers to the strategy michael bennett used in running against the tide and enter 2010 where by appealing to women and
of liberty. president obama is being briefed on the storm right now. he is expected to make a statement later this hour. we'll bring it to you live when that happens. and some other news this morning. new york city's mayor michael bloomberg just announced public schools will be closed again tomorrow. >> travel is not going very well at all anywhere in the country today because of the problem here on the east coast. amtrak has cancelled all northeast service more than 8600 flights have been cancelled as well. let's go to tom costello as reagan national airport with more on that side of the story. tom, good morning again. >> reporter: good morning. this is the way airports look in this particular area of the country that is getting hit by sandy. you can roll a bowling ball down there and not hit anybody. it's that way at reagan national airport, dulles and many others along the east coast. i want to tell you we just got word from the authority authority in new york, new jersey that they have reports of flooding up on to the runways at laguardia airport and we've heard that may be happening at j
and president obama's visit to the new jersey coastline. kayla tausche is live in atlantic city. kayla? >> reporter: hi, tyler. we just saw air force one fly right over us and headed likely toward the atlantic city airport. we have tons of residents in atlantic city who turned out very excited, very rambunctious to seat president. it is the first day of sun after days of wind and rain and of course the wreckage of sandy here is evident as a place that used to be home to more of a residential part of the boardwalk. residents would fish off of it and stroll here. not so much the business part of the boardwalk but the wreckage you're seeing here, nonetheless. here in atlantic city the cleanup is just in its early, early stages. some residents who chose to stay behind getting power. i spoke to one resident today who finally got power, got a pump to his basement and started trying to pump out water that had flooded his basement. he was moved to tears when he started talking about watching the boardwalk float down the street earlier this week. moving a little bit farther north, i mean the im
over all the way through until our work is done. all right? thank you very much, everybody. [applause] liz: president obama saying the government is here. we are here to help you. we will return calls. we will be there for all of the local leaders, tipping his hat to governor chris christie of new jersey saying he aggressively got out ahead of the storm trying to warn people. since then has put his heart and soul into the recovery. the president also taking extensive time to thank the first-responders, pointing out very, very truly, that they too have ruined homes, david. they too have families they couldn't be with, simply out there trying to help everybody. >> by the way this is a marina, what you're looking at a marina near atlantic city. it is called brigantine, new jersey. the president is there. the marina saw many boats as happens so often you a long the northeast coast move on to land. some of the boats you see there were moved onto a golf course, were forced by the tide rise, and then came back into the marina. so they had a round-trip. the president by the way will not come
they think a government should respond to a disaster. we know what president obama's stance is because we have been watching him act on it right now in realtime in this crisis he has faced as president. his opponent governor romney proposed a very different way. he's argued that he essentially doesn't want a federal government role in disaster response. he made these remarks on the subject at a debate last year saying not only should we get rid of a federal disaster response, but maybe it should even just be taken over by private business. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question, what should we keep? we should take all of what we're doing at the federal level and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do and those things we got to stop doing because we're borrowing $1.6 trilli
served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan
to do. i would be proud to carry the legislation as i was proud to carry the legislation to defund obama. i would be proud to repeal obamacare. >> moderator: all right. now jill. >> speaking specifically about president obama, and i'd have to ask the question differently. i'll start with congressman rehberg where has the president failed montana and how would you fix it? rehberg: in the health care reform to reform health care. it added people to a system that is already failing. i think the stimulus was failing. it failed. our solution is not necessarily put money in to a one-time expenditure. it was to build asset. we want to try to suspend payroll taxes on employers and employees for a period of year. it would have put money in the hands of every small business. the florist, the complarkter, the engineer, i would suggest new regulation coming out of unelected bureaucrats are destroying diswhroobs build montana. costing us employees and other 10 million year every year from our economy. cap-and-trade, i don't understand why -- for the you utility and hurting our coal, oil and gas indus
, making some arguments about the auto bailout which has been an issue that's helped president obama in the state of ohio. but the problem for mitt romney and anyone else participating in the campaign right now is all the coverage is drowning out anything that politicians say. we are locked in a very tight race. we had two new polls out this morning, tracking polls. one, the washington post/abc news poll showed mitt romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like iowa, states like nevada, states like ohio that mitt romney needs and we'll see whether they are right. but as of now, it appears unlikely that things are going to move very much over the next couple of days because romney's canceled campaign events tomorrow, so has the president. >> when we talk about the sort of being a dead heat in the popular vote, what do we know about the way the electoral vote may be breaking o
the tone just right at this event in dayton. >> finally, rahm emanuel dodged interview question until after the election. florida fourth grader asked president obama's former white house chie chief of staff, "do u have funny stories you can tell us about president obama?" emanuel said there were all kind of story bus he wouldn't share them just yet. "after the election i'll tell you some funny stories. i don't want to do anything that would ever be used the wrong way to jeopardize his to election, okay?" on the campaign trail, vice president biden routinely fires up crowds with empassioned speeches but lately his words have been getting away from him. but no one seems to be calling him on it. chief washington correspondent james rosen has more. >> i am being a good biden today. >> stumping in sarasota, florida, vice president biden did not commit a gaffe. the absence punctured a week and long season of campaigning in which the scrappy democratic ticket mate repeatedly stuck his foot some place other than the floor. last friday's wild inflation of the g.o.p. tax plan. >> $500 trillion tax cu
right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at
to the problem. the public's a bit adrift right now and trying to decide, obama has not been a failure as president, he's not been great, he's not been a failure. is he mediocre? a little better than mediocre? is he somewhere near great? people will disagree on that, but nobody's arguing the issue is in play. romney's been a very effective candidate lately, very effective, and he got rid of his opponents, smashed them to nothing. i think he's got a great team around him. i think the president's team is too small, a little bit narrow and isolated to put it lightly. but i tell you, obama does have that amazing luck. and here's a guy that ran for the senate against two or three opponents who all dropped out because of marital problems. he walked into the united states senate, he was a celebrity before he got there. he ran against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched.
. but obviously, hurricane sandy took over. my instinct for this, watching it all, is that president obama gets a lot more air time as the incumbent president in a time of national disaster and he seems to have done a pretty good job. chris christie, mitt romney's right-hand buddy, has been out there today saying what a great job he's been doing. >> sure. >> that has to be good for him, doesn't it? >> well, we have to see how the cleanup goes and if obama makes a mistake later on. but i would agree usually in the short run a crisis environment tends to help the incumbent president. and the fact is we only have the short run now, so if there's fallout in the long term then it might occur after he were elected. i still think voters are mostly basing this on the economy. maybe you have 1% of voters who are out there undecided. so it's an interesting event, but look, if romney had it in the cards to win before i'm not sure it would shift things enough against him. >> and also it still comes down to swing states and in many of those what may be more important for candidates is the inability to get t
